There will be all kinds of super fresh and local greens, such as lettuce, spinach, arugula; beets, cucumbers, radishes, scallions, and green garlic are all in season as well.
There should be strawberries again today. Remember that these strawberries are quite perishable, unlike the kind that you get from the grocery store which are sprayed with anti-mold and anti-fungal chemicals. These strawberries need to be eaten in 24 hours or frozen or preserved. You can do a quick preserve by mashing the strawberries with a little honey and lemon and then storing the mixture up to one week in your fridge. This mixture could also be frozen.
We will have grass fed beef and farm fresh cheeses, prepared foods from the Organic Garden Cafe and Thoreau Foods. Keep your eye out for our local health and wellness vendors: Ahimsa Massage, The Healing Center, and Beverly Farms Soapwerks.
The Market Tent will have a hand washing station and water to refill your bottles, or use one of our compostable cups. Also, come check out the new Compost Station at the Beverly Farmers' Market! Bring your compostable kitchen scraps to deposit at the Compost Station. We will take it away to Long Hill farm. Your scraps will be used to grow your veggies!
Come to the Market Tent to use your SNAP benefits at the market.
Jonathan Rand will provide the musical entertainment for the market today! So, come on down, enjoy the music, enjoy your neighbors, and buy the best food out there. See you at the market!
